The Queen Mary 2

The QM2 came into town yesterday, and D&J and I were among the thousands standing on the shore to watch it sail beneath the Golden Gate. Apparently they had to wait until low tide to squeeze it through--missing the bridge by about 27 feet--that's how big this thing is. There seemed to be something old about the whole affair, which I thought was nice. I like that kind of thing, i guess.

You need to check out the QM2 website, and the San Francisco Gate's photographs of the ship's arrival; they're really incredible. Click the photo below.
